Support and opportunity
Westminster City School's Sixth Form provides a supportive atmosphere and range of extra-curricular activities that enable you to grow into confident, articulate and independent young person.
Our Sixth Form is a friendly, diverse, welcoming and caring place. Since we are smaller than many other colleges, everybody knows each other and we enjoy a family-like atmosphere. Our internal and external students quickly make strong friendships, which they develop through participating in our extra-curricular activities, including Cadets, debating and the Model UN, and by taking part in trips and visits together.
Our dedicated Sixth Form team understand the importance of your education. We have a Head of Sixth Form and a Sixth Form Student Support Officer who work tirelessly to help you fulfil your potential in your two years with us.
While your time in our Sixth Form will be an action-packed and enjoyable, there may be moments when you need some support. Our students encourage each other through their studies, and our experienced and approachable Sixth Form team will support and guide you, in combination with your subject teachers and form tutors. You will be attached to form group for your two years with a dedicated form tutor.
Our Sixth Form is about so much more than academic studies, as we strive to develop our students beyond the classroom.
We make the most of our central London location and have built strong links with external organisations that benefit our students.
We are well connected with a number of major businesses and companies, including Deutsche Bank, Google, AT&T and PWC. Whether visiting us to offer a lecture or interactive workshop, or hosting you at their own offices for a discussion, these connections allow you gain a fascinating insight into how businesses operate, whilst building professional and personal networks.
On an academic level, we have a good relationship with a number of world-leading universities, including Imperial College London and University College London. These enable you to attend high-profile lectures, summer schools and placements, whilst building valuable knowledge about future university study.
Leadership opportunities within our Sixth Form
Leadership opportunities within our Sixth Form enable you to support our School, whilst developing important transferable skills (such as public speaking) that will be useful in any future career.
Our sixth formers apply for these positions of responsibility and are interviewed by a panel of teachers, in a process that prepares you for applying for a job in the future. Each year we have a Head Boy and Head Girl, who are supported by our Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl, our house captains, our subject prefects and our Sixth Form prefects.
The leadership responsibilities for these roles include helping with School open events, and supporting life within our Sixth Form and across our School.
Amongst many duties, our Head Boy and Head Girl frequently give speeches at different events, while our house captains help with house assemblies, our subject prefects tutor younger pupils, and our Sixth Form prefects help to drive forward different Sixth Form initiatives.
